Hi Michael!

How are you today? How is the weather there? I hope everything is ok!
I'm feeling well. I feel myself completely recovered. I want to thank
my friends. They helped to overcome the illness. My friends visited
me yesterday and I was very glad to see them. We did prepare chicken
fry with potatoes. It was delicious. They actually didn't stay till
late, because of my illness. All in all it was a very pleasant evening.

By the way they granted me some flowers. It was sky blue peonies. As
I wrote you before these are my favourite flowers and my favourite
colour. You should remember that Michael.
I talked to my agent and she told me that all of my papers are ready.
My visa is ready too and it is waiting for me in the main office of
my agency in Moscow. I'll fly out from Moscow and I'll pick up my visit

from my agency en route to the airport. I also talked with her about
the job they found for me. My agent said that I'll have a different
salary from one year to another. My salary for the first year will be
$40 000 USD, and $50 000 USD for the second year. Next 3 year salary
could be raised more, maybe it will not happened, but it will not down
under $50 000 USD. It's for sure. Michael, can you tell me if this
amount of money will be enough for me to live in your area? Let me
know.
I think I will be able to afford a place of my own right away (I mean a

rent), but I'm not sure if I will be able to afford a car. Should I buy

a used car or I can expect that I can buy a new one? What do you think?

What are the prices for the used cars and for the new cars?
I was told that I'll get an advance as soon as I come to NYC. It will
be $5000 USD, which I'll have to return in six months. I believe that
it
is not a great amount of money, so I'll be very careful with them. I'm
going to reserve a ticket by Thursday or by Friday, not sure right now.

I wanted to make it tomorrow but I've got some affairs which I have to
finish right away. I'll let you know my flight schedule soon.
I watched a TV set lately and there was a programme about the NASCAR
racing championship.
I see it's a very popular sport event in the states. I find it
interesting
too. I'd like to visit the race sometime. Is it possible? Is it
expensive?
I want to give you my address just in case. Here it is:
Country: Russia
Region: Komi region
Town: Lach
Lermontova street, building # 7, apt. # 10
But, please, do not send anything through regular mail. I want you to
know that our mail service is very bad. It is very slow and the cards
or packages could be lost or even stolen! There a lot such incidents
here.
That is why I want to warn you from sending anything through our mail
service. I gave you my address to show you that I trust you enough
Michael.
I want you to know that I started to feel some kind of affection
towards
you Michael. I miss you letters when I have no possibility to check my
mailbox and to read them. It is very strange. I do not know how to
explain
it. Well, it is late and I have to quit here. I've attached a picture
for
you. The quality is not very good, but I hope you will like it. I'll
try
to prepare a new picture for you tomorrow.
I'll wait for your reply Michael!
Your Russian friend Anna


Hi my faraway friend Michael!
It is 4:00 pm in Lach, Thursday. We've got a thaw today and the snow
has melted away. Everything has become gray and gloomy. My mood is on
the zero. In fact, I've got a flue or something like this. I feel
myself terrible. I think I have to see my doctor today. That is why
I'll be short today, ok? I hope you are well Michael and didn't get
sick. It's a horrible feeling.
I talked to my agent today and she said that I have to reserve a ticket

by next week. She said that my visa and other documents will be ready
in a week, so I can start to pack my baggage! I was also told that I'll

have to spend 2 or 3 days in NYC before I'll head to my place of
working.
It will be needed to arrange some formalities and to sign a contract
with the employer. My agent said that I'll be met in the airport. Those

people will help me to reach the office in NYC. All in all I think I'll

come to NYC in a 2 week. It is really close from now. I'm getting
exciting
and nervous at the same time. I so used to have my mother somewhere
close
to me, that it will be very difficult for me to leave her here in Lach.

I'll try to take her to America in the future when I'll get a
citizenship.
I'll think how to arrange it.
Michael, I wonder what places I should visit in America. I've heard of
Niagara Falls, Las Vegas and Hollywood. Maybe there is something else?
Let me know. I very like to travel and to see new places.
I can't remember if I ever asked you about your horoscope's sign. As I
wrote you before I was born 23.12.1978 which makes me Capricorn. Do you

actually believe in horoscope? As for me I do. I find it fun.
I went today to our local connection center and asked if there is any
way you could call me from overseas. I want you to know that I have a
phone but it has a local number only. It means that I can make
calls/receive
calls if they are local only. Do you understand it? I hope. So I think
if
I'll call you when I come to NYC it will be ok.
Michael, from each letter I feel that I'm getting closer to you. Do you
feel
the same? I feel some kind of connection. I can't explain it right now,

but I like it.
I've attached a new pic of me today. It was taken a year ago by my
friend
Katerina, as usual. She is my best friend. She is feeling well after
her
car accident by the way.
Well, my doctor is waiting for me. I have to go. I hope that I'll feel
much
better tomorrow!
Be healthy!
Your Russian friend Anna


Hello my friend Michael!
I am very happy to see that you wrote me! I was not able to check my
mailbox during the weekend, and I must admit I started to miss you
letters.
Indeed I'm feeling much better today. It was a terrible weekend for me.

My doctor said that I have to stay at home and do not leave my bed. I
had
a high temperature and a cough. I'm still feeling myself ill but much
better than during the weekend. I feel that I'm recovering Michael.
A medicine became quite expensive here since the USSR did fall to
pieces.
I remember the times when everything was for free. It sounds like a
fairy
tale now. I have to pay 500 rubles ($20 USD) every time when I see my
doctor.
I'm not sure if it is too many for America, but it is quite expensive
for
Russia. I wonder how much does it cost to see a doctor in America. Let
me
know.
Michael, I want to ask you could you find out what the average
designer's
salary in America is. It is very interesting for me to know, especially
in
your area.
As I wrote you before I was going to reserve a ticket by this week. I
hope
that I'll it by Wednesday or Thursday. As soon as I reserve a ticket
I'll
let you know the exact date of my coming! I also will have to pay some
money
to my agency; because they helped me to find a place to work and helped
with
the papers. I'm very nervous about my coming to America. I think that I

caught flu because of my agitated condition. It is so good to have
friends
which could hold you on in a hard time. Some of my friends will visit
me today
in the evening. They will help me to clean up my apartment and will
help me
to cook my favourite dish - chicken fry with potatoes. I'm very good at
cooking
and maybe someday soon you'll check it out! I like flowers very much
and I
hope that some of friends will tumble to bring me some flowers. I like
roses,
asters and peonies. Do you ever heard of peonies? I bet you do not, but
it is
a very popular flower here in Russia.
Did I ever tell you my last name Michael? I guess I never did. Well, my
last
name is Sotova.
My full name is Anna Petrovna Sotova. So you know now.
Michael, I think we could be a good match. I do not want to push you
and I'm
not in a rush either. Please get me right. I have to say that I
definitely want
to meet you face to face, to talk to you one on one. Only time will
tell if we
are a match, but I'm happy that I have a friend like you are Michael.
I'll stop here. I feel myself tired a little bit, I need some rest.
I'll write
to you tomorrow and will send you a new pic.
Your Russian friend Anna


Hi Michael!
How are you? How is the weather there today? I hope that much better
than here
in Lach. We've got a first snow this morning! It was really beautiful!
Everything
was white. I've got up very early today and what I've seen I could name
'The white
noiselessness'.
I went to my agency this morning and I was told that they could suggest
me some
job's options in your area. That's real great! So I can definitely say
that I'll
come to your area. I don't know how close I'll work/live to you, but I
think it
will not be a problem, right?! I can not say the names of the companies
and if they
have web-sites right now. But I can say that I really wonder myself. My
agent told me that
she couldn't advise what company to choose. She said that I can make my
choice at
New York office. There are some people there who can advise me what
company to choose.
I consider that it is reasonable and I think that I should make my
choice in the
States. Michael, do you know what will be the first thing I'll do when
I come to
NYC? I'm going to call you! I want to hear your voice very much
Michael. I'm still
looking for a chance to call you from Lach but it appears quite
complicated and
expensive. I hope you understand it Michael, and will not be upset.
I don't remember if I ever told you about my town. Maybe it will be
interesting for
you. The name of my town is Lach. It's a small town and the closest big
city is Ukhta.
The population of my town is about 25 thousands of people. My town is
located in Komi
region; it is not far from Siberia so the weather is very rigid here
too. Lach is a
very green town in the summer and very white in the winter! Every
winter we get a lot
of snow. There are some cinemas in Lach, we even have a theatre. The
streets here are
narrow, but it creates some kind of cosiness. I like it. I love my
town, but it's time
for me to leave it. Maybe I'll back someday, who knows. I think the
hardest thing for
me will be to part with my friends and relatives. I used to spend a lot
of free time
with them, I'll miss them. I'll also miss for my apartment. It is
actually not big (It
consists of 2 rooms), but very cozy. My apartment consists of bathroom,
dining room,
hall, lobby and bedroom. I wanted to make a new design for it but it is
not actual for
me now. What can you tell about your surroundings Michael? I'd like
to know.
I must admit that sometimes I feel myself really confused because many
of the questions
you asked I already answered in my previous letters. I don't know how
to check it but
I'm wondering if you received all of my letters. It is a strange
situation. Maybe some
letters didn't get to your mailbox right away? I do not know why that
is.
I've attached a new pic for you today. My friend Katerina did shoot me
last spring. You
probably admitted that I look different in my photos?! I actually like
to look different.
In fact, I'm not a natural blonde. I like to colour my hair. I hope
it's not an issue
for you Michael? I tried some colours but I think that the blonde hair
is the best choice
for me. Don't you think so?
Ok, it's getting late here. I have to close now. I'll write you
tomorrow Michael. It is
so good that I have so much free time this week so I can write you
everyday. I hope you
don't mind that I write so often.
Your Russian friend Anna

Here is another one sent today.

Hi Rin!
How are you? I hope you are well. I'm fine! It's just
a quick note for you Rin. I want to let you know

me a message or not, but I'll check my mailbox tomorrow
morning and will write you a reply.
Please keep writing to me even if I didn't write, ok.
Well, I have to close now.
Till then Rin.

What is the purpose of her writing these letters which I also received.
Is she looking for money?????

That's not a 'she' that has written these letters and yes, they want you to pay for 'her' visa and ticket.

SOME GENERAL INFO ABOUT RUSSIAN GIRLS AND RUSSIAN DATING SCAMMERS:

The vast majority of Russian dating scammers are men, mostly working in small gangs in or around Yoshkar Ola, in Mari El republic. It's virtually guaranteed that the girls in these scam pics aren't involved because the scammers steal them from the internet or pay unsuspecting friends for them, or buy and exchange them on scammer websites. (Once a scammer even admitted to stealing them to me). Most scammers are VERY lazy and looking for quick cash. They use email extractor programs to get your mail addresses, and form mails and spam programs on automatic reply, very often the BAT!, which can personalize small parts of each letter. They won't read your letters until after the money letter because they don't have time, ie because they're scamming, or trying to scam, as many guys as they can (economies of scale).....and also because they're semi-literate losers who can't speak much English anyway. IN OTHER WORDS, you can write any crap in your replies and they won't react, they're only interested when they're curious to know if you've taken the bait. The majority of Russian scammers nowadays also use proxy servers or forged IPs to hide their locations. A girl is only involved either occasionally to phone a guy up, especially when he's suspicious, or to pick up the loot at Western Union, with a false ID of course!

So....if several or more of the following criteria apply to your Boris (the beautiful Russian 'girl' that is supposedly writing to you), resist the temptation to help 'the poor girl' by sending her money. You're really writing to a sleazy guy sitting in a smoky room in Yoshkar Ola, with a bunch of other sleazy guys spamming indiscriminately on laptops .

# 'girl' writes to you first on a dating site...especially a free one (or an email appears out of nowhere in your mailbox). Real Russian girls are rarely so bold as to write to you first. (unless you're obviously very attractive or rich :))) They will often reply to your mails, but rarely take the initiative. It's the man who does the chasing in Russia. Plus if they're looking for a partner, they generally prefer him to be Russian speaking and live in Russia. Much more convenient!
# girl's much too young for you (or too good to be true/looks like a model/porno star)....although I have noticed a recent tendency for some scammers to use photos of slightly 'less attractive' girls as well.
# girl has some far-fetched excuses for you not visiting her in Russia (criminal city, not the Russian custom, terrorism, it's her dream to come to your country, etc). ALL BULLSHIT!! Actually, the normal way to meet a Russian girl is to visit her in her city first!
# scammers rarely have children, but most of the real Russian women I've ever met on the internet did (except for Moscow career girls). It's often the reason that they're looking for a partner.
# photos are too revealing (can't be a respectable girl). Respectability is very important to most Russian women (especially Moscow career girls). They're hardly likely to send a half-naked photo to a virtual stranger on the internet. Think with your brain!
# most of the pics are old and a little bit faded with a curiously grainy quality that soon becomes quite easy to recognise (overuse?). Again a scammer admitted to me that low-quality photos are a key factor in his scamming. I found this strange because a serious girl who's looking for a partner usually saves up and goes to a professional to have a studio set done (often corny ones posing with a chair etc), and/or borrows a digicam at least (dates should also be on the photos you receive). My fiancée did it. Russian girls aren't all that poor anymore, and if they seriously want to leave Russia, they know that posting cheap pics will only attract cheap guys.
# girl claims not to have a mobile phone. Very unlikely!!! fer f***'s sake.....do you know a single girl without a mobile phone? Even poor Russian girls can't do without one, they're much cheaper than in Europe and a megafon telephone card doesn't cost that much either. You should be able to call her whenever you want. On the other hand, not having a landline or a desktop/laptop is very common.
# very long rambling/ecstatic form letters with a strange format, punctation and layout written in scamlish. (world's worst Babelfish copy)
# writes long letters everyday in English. How does she have time to write those long letters if she's working? And if she doesn't have a job, how can she afford a computer + internet? Even Internet cafés are relatively expensive in Russia. Anyway, most Russians outside Moscow can hardly speak a word of English. What's the point of finding a girl you can't communicate with, at least on a basic level? + if she can't speak English, why does she have a non-cyrillic email account like gmail or yahoo? Most real Russians use mail.ru, yandex.ru or inbox.ru....though hotmail and yahoo are acceptable if she'll chat with you on messenger (preferably with a webcam).
# doesn't answer direct questions (sometimes factual mistakes in the letter). Her replies should be exactly that...replies...however short they are.
# falls in 'love' very quickly. Don't let your ego or loneliness pull the wool over your eyes. She doesn't know you. You could be an axe murderer for all she knows. Russian TV is full of documentaries about Russian girls who have emigrated and got murdered, abandoned, etcetc.
# uses a proxy server to hide his/her location, ie a SOCKS server / GPRS Internet. if you can't trace 'her' IP, it's 100% scam. THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS TRACE HER IP ADDRESS. In fact, that's the only thing you need to do really..

MOST IMPORTANT...if you get this far:
# she asks for money for a tourist 'visa' and/or maybe tickets, ignoring the fact that IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SINGLE RUSSIAN GIRL TO GET A TOURIST VISA TO A WESTERN COUNTRY!

She can get a SPONSORED visa with your help, but then she needs a personal letter of invitation from you, a copy of your passport, a proof of your residence in your home country, a completed sponsor's application form (also from you)....not including the documents that she has to fill in herself. All of these she has to drop off at your national embassy in Moscow WITH PREPAID TICKETS and wait 10 working days. These are the rules for the Schengen countries...the USA and Canada are almost as complicated. Anyway, a normal tourist visa + travel costs + hotel rooms would set her back 2000+ US dollars for a trip to the US. She should be asking you for a lot of money! Why should it be so easy for a gorgeous sexy girl just to jump on a plane and fall into bed with you? Be realistic. In any case, no respectable Russian girl would ask directly for money, but might accept if you insisted.

NB...you should check your national embassy website in Moscow for visa prices and procedures.
http://www.bbc.co.u..2/A1146115

There are a few scammers that are more patient and professional, who will take months before they scam you for money (though if you follow my tips, you should be able to spot them anyway). There are even a few real girls scamming, and professional gold-diggers (mostly in the Ukraine). One or two of them are very bold, are not even afraid to use their true identities. These scammers are harder to spot, and there is no easy way to identify them, all you can do is use your instincts and common sense.

But a ground rule is: if you are looking for a Russian wife/partner, you must be prepared to travel to Russia to meet her. You also need to behave generously towards her, after all you need to prove that you can support here (and her kids) if she migrates to your country. But if she turns out to be a professional gold-digger, which has never happened to me personally or anyone I know (but I know it does happen), you should try to be philosophical and treat it as an exotic trip to a foreign country, have fun anyway, and try not to waste too much money on her.

There are actually hundreds of perfectly nice Russian girls in Russia but you have to be prepared to go and get them. Chercher la femme. It worked for me.

she has never asked me for money or visa or any kind of help. I am not sure if this is a genuine person or not. she said that she needs some friends here and that everything else is taken care of by her agency and the company she is working for. I would probably keep reading her letters before I can see some visa or money related content. And , if this is a genuine person seeking help, then we should not ignore. I might be wrong, since she never read my email or replied to it. also, she never referred to what I wrote.

Anyways, this is want I received today.

Hello my friend Rin!
How have you been? How was your weekend Rin? Did you do something
interesting? My weekend was good. I spent a lot of time with my mom.
She is feeling well. Today is Monday and my mother will have a surgery
today. Her doctor said that she is ready to be operated. The surgery
will take place today in the evening and I'll pray for her. Tomorrow
morning I'll know the preliminary results of the surgery and will let
you know Rin. Her doctor said that everything will be ok, but I'm
still nervous about it. I'm going to cook something special for my mom
when she will be released from the hospital. I don't know what I'll
cook, but it will not be something that we eat on a regular basis. We
actually eat soup, porridge, spaghetti, mashed potatoes with meatballs
and what have you. I think she will need to eat more to recover her
strength, and I'll help her. I was told that she will be released in
a week if everything will be ok.
I hope so. Every single day in a hospital costs money and I hope that
it will not cost me too much. I wonder do you know how much does it
cost to stay in the hospital there.
My friend Katerina helps me a lot in last few days. She is a very
good friend. It is very important to have somebody who can help you
in a hard time. Do you have such friends? I hope so. We know each other

for a long time. We studied in the school together and now we live in
the neighboring courtyard. Too bad we will have to part. She does not
speak English well, so she has to study up for a little bit. Does
everyone speak fluent English there? Maybe some people will laugh at
my accent, who knows. I don't want to look like a white crow there.
I also will try to find and send you a pic of the two of us together.
So you will know how she looks like.
Rin, I have no friends in America but you. I have never told you
before, but I think it is time to tell you that. I had a relative in
the states. My aunt Elena went to the states many years before and
lived with her husband in the state of Maine. They met many years ago
in Moscow and did fall in love with each other. There was a very
romantic
story and maybe I'll tell you about it someday. They were married and
lived very well but a half year ago her husband died. My aunt had some
friends there but despite of it she decided to return to Russia and
now she lives not far from my town in the city of Novgorod. She is very

old and she says that she want to die in Russia. My aunt and her
husband
save up some money and my aunt will come into the right to get the
inheritance soon. They did not have kids so she will get the whole
amount.
I'm glad that my aunt will be provided to the end of her life. They
lived a long life together but they didn't have kids, I don't know why.

But as for me I'd like to have kids someday! I think this is what I
live for. I believe that every woman wants to have kids and I'm not an
exception. I think that children are the flowers of our life. There is
nothing in the world that can be worth of a single tear of a child. Do
you agree Rin? A part of us continues to live in our children when
we die. So we never die at all, we become immortal. What do you think
Rin?
I'm a very romantic and spontaneous person, so please don't be scared
of my thoughts. I like to ponder and sometimes it brings me to the
different interesting thoughts. What about you Rin? Well, I'll close
here. I want to visit my mom before the surgery. Oh, by the way she
told me to say 'Hi!' to you!
With the deepest affection towards Rin!
Yours Anna

I think I got a scammer!!


Do any of you know the email

vishenka@inbox.com ??


hahah, this is a lot of fun!!

Actually, I think these Russian girls don't even know someone is using their pictures!!

This girl (or man) is supposed to be named 'Nina'.

Nice name, isn't it?

She never answers my questions, even simple ordinary innocent questions.

It seems as if you are talking to a computer or to a robot that provides a pre-programmed text no matter what the 'conversation' is all about.

Occasionally she (he? it?) makes comment to something you said, but it is very rare.

She claims to be from Moscow.

Im not absolutely sure she (he? it?) is a scammer, but it seems to be because of many red flags:

1)Out of nothing she sent me a private message from an opinion forum, claiming my profile is interesting. hahha, my profile can not be interesting since I have nothing there, not even a picture

2)She writes poor English (even worst than mine) and she tells a story hard to believe. She is gorgeous, really beautiful. No way a woman like that could be looking for a man from a distant country.

3)I'm not attractive, still she thinks I'm a lovely and interesting guy.

4)She claims all of her girlfriends have been dissapointed by Russian men, because they are alcoholic and beats women from time to time. There are alcoholic violent men all around the world, but it is impossible that ALL Russian men be alcoholic violent guys. There must be nice men in Russia so, why go abroad specially if you are a beautiful babe?

5)She told me her measurements even that I did not asked her for that.

6)It is too good to be true

Be careful boys/girls !!

This is a bogus joke. Obviously whoever this is knows how to scam pretty well. I am glad I only replied a few times but I am also glad I happened to check into her town location and do a bit of research, Well it turned out that just by going to google the town name the first thing that popped up was her name and the fact that it is a known dating scam. I started to question who this really was after a couple of e-mails that I received regarding settling down, eventually having children and her talking about her aunt that lived in the United states for many years and then suddenly returning to Russia? This started to seem pretty strange to me so I checked it out and I am glad I did. It is a bogus scam. Don't even reply to this person if you receive an e-mail simply click it as spam. These people can possibly stel identities and try to take money from suckers that really believe these lies. Anyways, the bottom line is Make Damn sure you find out just who you are talking to on-line. No one wants to fall victim to identity theft or lose money to some con artist pretending to be a pretty girl! Unfortunately too many desparate guys think they will meet and fall in love with this girl that, Probabl does not even exist. The images you see are probably taken from some kind of agency and posted on-line. If you do not notice, the pictures are only of her, there are no friends included and there is never any indication of her going out with friends and having any fun. These are all indications of a scam!! Anyways hopefully more people catch this and will ignore these bogus things!

Hi Dan!

How are you today? How is the weather there? I hope everything is ok!
I'm feeling well. I feel myself completely recovered. I want to thank my friends. They helped to overcome the illness. My friends visited me yesterday and I was very glad to see them. We did prepare chicken fry with potatoes. It was delicious. They actually didn't stay till late, because of my illness. All in all it was a very pleasant evening.
By the way they granted me some flowers. It was sky blue peonies. As I wrote you before these are my favourite flowers and my favourite colour. You should remember that Dan.
I talked to my agent and she told me that all of my papers are ready.
My visa is ready too and it is waiting for me in the main office of my agency in Moscow. I'll fly out from Moscow and I'll pick up my visit from my agency en route to the airport. I also talked with her about the job they found for me. My agent said that I'll have a different salary from one year to another. My salary for the first year will be $40 000 USD, and $50 000 USD for the second year. Next 3 year salary could be raised more, maybe it will not happened, but it will not down under $50 000 USD. It's for sure. Dan, can you tell me if this amount of money will be enough for me to live in your area? Let me know.
I think I will be able to afford a place of my own right away (I mean a rent), but I'm not sure if I will be able to afford a car. Should I buy a used car or I can expect that I can buy a new one? What do you think?
What are the prices for the used cars and for the new cars?
I was told that I'll get an advance as soon as I come to NYC. It will be $5000 USD, which I'll have to return in six months. I believe that it is not a great amount of money, so I'll be very careful with them. I'm going to reserve a ticket by Thursday or by Friday, not sure right now.
I wanted to make it tomorrow but I've got some affairs which I have to finish right away. I'll let you know my flight schedule soon.
I watched a TV set lately and there was a programme about the NASCAR racing championship.
I see it's a very popular sport event in the states. I find it interesting too. I'd like to visit the race sometime. Is it possible? Is it expensive?
I want to give you my address just in case. Here it is:
Country: Russia
Region: Komi region
Town: Lach
Lermontova street, building # 7, apt. # 10 But, please, do not send anything through regular mail. I want you to know that our mail service is very bad. It is very slow and the cards or packages could be lost or even stolen! There a lot such incidents here.
That is why I want to warn you from sending anything through our mail service. I gave you my address to show you that I trust you enough Dan.
I want you to know that I started to feel some kind of affection towards you Dan. I miss you letters when I have no possibility to check my mailbox and to read them. It is very strange. I do not know how to explain it. Well, it is late and I have to quit here. I've attached a picture for you. The quality is not very good, but I hope you will like it. I'll try to prepare a new picture for you tomorrow.
I'll wait for your reply Dan!
Your Russian friend Anna

This is an example! There are many more that she/he or IT? sends to many people. The messages seem to be the same except for the name differences. Throws up a lot of red flags to normal people ya know?? Be careful about communicating with this person people!

well, I've reeived mostly all the lleters I've seen so far...


this is the last one:Hello my friend Steve!
How have you been? How was your weekend Steve? Did you do something
interesting? My weekend was good. I spent a lot of time with my mom.
She is feeling well. Today is Monday and my mother will have a surgery
today. Her doctor said that she is ready to be operated. The surgery
will take place today in the evening and I'll pray for her. Tomorrow
morning I'll know the preliminary results of the surgery and will let
you know Steve. Her doctor said that everything will be ok, but I'm
still nervous about it. I'm going to cook something special for my mom
when she will be released from the hospital. I don't know what I'll
cook, but it will not be something that we eat on a regular basis. We
actually eat soup, porridge, spaghetti, mashed potatoes with meatballs
and what have you. I think she will need to eat more to recover her
strength, and I'll help her. I was told that she will be released in
a week if everything will be ok.
I hope so. Every single day in a hospital costs money and I hope that
it will not cost me too much. I wonder do you know how much does it
cost to stay in the hospital there.
My friend Katerina helps me a lot in last few days. She is a very
good friend. It is very important to have somebody who can help you
in a hard time. Do you have such friends? I hope so. We know each other

for a long time. We studied in the school together and now we live in
the neighboring courtyard. Too bad we will have to part. She does not
speak English well, so she has to study up for a little bit. Does
everyone speak fluent English there? Maybe some people will laugh at
my accent, who knows. I don't want to look like a white crow there.
I also will try to find and send you a pic of the two of us together.
So you will know how she looks like.
Steve, I have no friends in America but you. I have never told you
before, but I think it is time to tell you that. I had a relative in
the states. My aunt Elena went to the states many years before and
lived with her husband in the state of Maine. They met many years ago
in Moscow and did fall in love with each other. There was a very
romantic
story and maybe I'll tell you about it someday. They were married and
lived very well but a half year ago her husband died. My aunt had some
friends there but despite of it she decided to return to Russia and
now she lives not far from my town in the city of Novgorod. She is very

old and she says that she want to die in Russia. My aunt and her
husband
save up some money and my aunt will come into the right to get the
inheritance soon. They did not have kids so she will get the whole
amount.
I'm glad that my aunt will be provided to the end of her life. They
lived a long life together but they didn't have kids, I don't know why.

But as for me I'd like to have kids someday! I think this is what I
live for. I believe that every woman wants to have kids and I'm not an
exception. I think that children are the flowers of our life. There is
nothing in the world that can be worth of a single tear of a child. Do
you agree Steve? A part of us continues to live in our children when
we die. So we never die at all, we become immortal. What do you think
Steve?
I'm a very romantic and spontaneous person, so please don't be scared
of my thoughts. I like to ponder and sometimes it brings me to the
different interesting thoughts. What about you Steve? Well, I'll close
here. I want to visit my mom before the surgery. Oh, by the way she
told me to say 'Hi!' to you!
With the deepest affection towards Steve!
Yours Anna

And I got another one after not writing for several days. I am interested to see how this plays out. I keep expecting her to ask for cash for her visa (but she says she has it), when she got sick (but she didn't) or for her mom (didn't do that either). Maybe she is going to ask for money now that her mom is better? Get me to feel sorry for her? Someone is certainly spending a lot of time on this. I wonder what the payoff is?
